PrecisionBrass.net currently has a generous stock of Nickel plated .223 brass. Nickel typically doesn’t tarnish like yellow brass and if you’re going to carry loaded ammo somewhere exposed, or if you will be loading/unloading your carry ammo into a magazine multiple times, then nickel plated brass casings for your ammo may be exactly what you need.
Nickel is resistance to corrosion and nickel plated cases can be good for reloaded ammunition cases that you plan to put on the shelf for an extended period of time, rather than shooting them right away. Nickel plated cases can crack/fail more quickly than yellow brass cases, and that the nickel plating can flake off in the sizing die and can scratch your other cases. We recommend applying a Lubricant to your cases which will lower the likelihood of flakes in your dies.
www.PrecisionBrass.net ALL your once fired brass and reloading needs
Made specifically for your firearm to the specs that you need means better accuracy. When you purchase ammo from the factory it is typically made to fit a variety of different guns. One size fits all is just not going to cut it for the Precision that you need. Customizing your own ammo allows you to get the best performance out of your bullets .
Handloads will typically be more accurate with brass that’s been fired at least once in the exact rifle you intend to load for. This is because once fired, the brass is expanded to the exact contour of the chamber in your rifle.The easiest step in handloading precision rifle ammunition is carefully measuring your rifle’s chamber/lead dimensions and then optimizing your bullet seating depth when seating bullets.
If you do a little investigation there is a big difference between the large and small primer pocket .45 ACP
The bottom line is that small pistol primer.45 ACP are designed and loaded for promotional, value-priced purposes (mostly training and target practice). However, small pocket .45 ACP brass is still manufactured to high quality standards! It’s great brass! especially, when loaded with the correct-sized primer that it’s intended for. Most duty ammunition is all large primer pocket .45 ACP, and large primer .45 is still the most desired primer pocket out of the two options, because of it’s capabilities and availability through precisionbrass.net.
Obviously, all safety precautions should be taken when reloading.
1. Buy brass from a company like precisionbrass.net who pre-sorts the .45 brass
2. Only load larger primers in large primers pocketed .45 ACP Brass.
3. Only load small primers in small primer pocketed .45 ACP Brass.
4. Do not resize primer pockets to try and modify the brass.
5. As always, be alert, pay attention to what you are doing and don’t assume anything. Call or email precisionbrass.net if you have questions or concerns.

What you are looking at is the first Model M&P revolver created specifically for the .38 cartridge. Designed in 1899 and left the factory in 1900 . There is of course the famous Smith & Wesson Model 10 in .38 Special produced in 1899 seen below.
What makes the .38 Special so special? Because of it’s black powder heritage, the .38 Special is a low pressure cartridge, one of the lowest in common use today! As you probably already know the .38 Special is particularly popular among handloaders.
The cartridge’s straight walls, headspacing on the rim, ready availability of previously-fired cases, and ability to be fired in .357 Magnum firearms, all contribute to this popularity. For reloading and once fired brass please click here
